"Few private citizens have led so distinguished a public life, few businessmen have had so dazzling a series of careers. Statesman, envoy, industrialist, entrepreneur, physician, philanthropist, collector extraordinaire -- this is the remarkable autobiography of a truly remarkable man.
"From Lenin to Gorbachev, from FDR to Reagan, from presidents and prime ministers to shahs, sheiks, and monarchs, he has known all the great leaders of the world. With humor, insight, toughness, an astonishing energy, and small taste for fools, Armand Hammer lays his extraordinary life before us, from its beginnings on New York's East Side in 1898 to the drama of Chernobyl in 1986. It is a book filled with achievement and inspiration -- and by its end we feel we have indeed been witness to history" from back cover. 544 pp. 16 pp. photos
